I'm not one that usually tries energy drinks. I love my coffee in the morning and that's usually the only caffeine I get during the day. But some days I DO need a little pick me up in the afternoon...around 2:00 some days my energy levels go way down and I get super sleepy. So I was excited when I received this in the mail:
Zipfizz! I've seen this in stores and have seen a few tweets about it on twitter so I was so happy they sent me some to try!
They sent me a cute BPA free water bottle that included their FIVE flavors (orange soda, pink lemonade, grape, citrus, and berry) and a Zipfizz jump drive. I immediately went to the computer, inserted the jump drive, and learned more about Zipfizz! I was definitely impressed with the following chart:
I currently drink Gatorade on my long runs...but I love that Zipfizz has more electrolytes plus vitamins in it to help me during my run!
Here's what Zipfizz says about their product:
Zipfizz is an all-natural, great tasting energy drink-mix powderMy most favorite thing about Zipfizz is all the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in it! I also love that it's only 10 calories per serving and there's no sugar in it. The sugar content of Gatorade is one thing I don't like about Gatorade.
that delivers a powerful charge of micronutrients to the body's fuel
system. It contains no ephedra or other artificial stimulants. Most

Because Zipfizz contains no sugar, users will experience an
increased energy level for up to 4 - 6 hours with out the sudden
"crash" associated with other energy drinks.
Zipfizz challenged me to take the 5 day challenge....where I drank Zipfizz once a day for five days. Of course I accepted the challenge (you guys know me and challenges!). Could I tell a difference after drinking Zipfizz? Yes! I felt more alert and had more energy! I also put Zipfizz in my water belt bottle during one of my long runs instead of Gatorade and I could definitely tell a difference when I was running! I could feel it working and giving me the energy I needed to complete the run!
What about the flavors? I tried the Grape first and loved it! I loved the little bit of carbonation in the drink and it tasted great too! I thought to myself that grape would probably be my favorite flavor because there was no way the other flavors could taste that good!
Well then I tried the orange soda flavor! And it tasted like I was drinking Sunkist...only I knew it was so much better for me than Sunkist!
Citrus was the next flavor. It kind of confused me because I expected it to be an orange color but it was a light almost tan color. The taste...soooo good!!!
And the last flavor was berry. This was my least favorite...but I think that is partly because I am not a big berry fan.
So overall...I am a Zipfizz FAN!!! And the best part..you can buy Zipfizz in stores!
